Adam Henrique: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
One of New Jersey's more talented younger players, Henrique enters his third NHL season as one of the team's top centers. He missed a handful of games at the start of the shortened season with a wrist injury, but returned to register 11 goals and 16 points for the offensively challenged Devils. Look for Henrique to be slotted alongside some of the team's top forwards such as Patrik Elias or Jaromir Jagr and for him to build on the 51 points he recorded as a rookie while sandwiched between Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk. Clearly, Henrique has shown the ability to play alongside stars, now the Devils need him to establish himself as a legitimate offensive threat. His value remains higher in keeper leagues, but those in single season leagues will want to roll the dice on an upside play like this former Windsor Spitfire.
Henrique followed his solid 18-goal, 51-point rookie campaign with a solid playoff performance, notching two series-winning overtime goals in New Jersey’s run to the Stanley Cup Finals. Henrique established himself as one of the top young players in the NHL last year and has even higher value in keeper leagues. Despite his solid numbers, Henrique finished the season with just three goals after the All-Star break and played most of the season between Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk. He’ll enter the season as one of New Jersey’s top centers and should challenge 60 points even without Mr. Parise riding shotgun. Bump him up a few spots in keeper leagues.
Henrique was one of the Devils' top scorers for it's AHL club, Albany, last season with 50 points in 73 games. He played one game in the NHL and is behind several other centers on the team's depth chart. Look for him to start the season in Albany and be called up when the Devils suffer injuries at the center position.
Henrique stands out as one of the top prospects in the New Jersey system. He shined in four seasons with the Windsor spitfires, averaging close to a point per game in 238 junior-league contests. Better yet, Henrique is expected to take his all-around game to the professional level in 2010-11, and he will suit up in the NHL from the start.
